  • This is a great way to stretch your prawn/shrimp budget further. By chopping the prawns into smaller pieces they go further in the salad. I’m one of those people that like to have a little bit of everything in each mouthful (or at least the option!) and chopping the prawns makes that easy.
  • Garlic-infused olive oil – this is available in supermarkets, alongside all of the other oils. My suggestion would be to taste test it first as they can vary in strength. You may want to tone down the garlic flavour using regular olive oil – depending on your taste.
